If you would like keep some content hidden from the public eye, you could enable password protection for a specific folder - either the main website folder or any other one below it. In case this option is active, a pop-up will appear anytime anyone attempts to open the folder in question or clicks on a direct link which goes a few levels deeper, so login info shall be needed for www.domain.com/folder/image.jpg if you have secured only the domain.com folder. In case the details aren't valid, a “403 Forbidden” message shall appear and there isn't any way of getting around this restriction, so you can be positive that nobody will be able to access the secured content. The function may be beneficial in a number of cases - if only some people must be able to see specific files, if you are building a website and you do not want people to see it prior to it being completed, and so on.
Password Protected Directories in Shared Website Hosting
With the password protection tool provided with every shared website hosting
package deal that we provide, you'll be able to protect any content which you have within your account with merely a few mouse clicks. Because the tool is a component of our revolutionary Hepsia CP, it has the exact same uncomplicated interface and you'll not require any special skills to use it. When you navigate to the Password Protection section, you will need to pick one of the domains or subdomains that you have within the account and then decide if the protection should be turned on for the main folder or for a subfolder. Then input the username and the password that you'd like and you shall be set. A little padlock icon within the File Manager section will tell you that a specific folder is password-protected. In the same way you will be able to include multiple usernames and passwords for the same folder if you would like several people to have their own login credentials.
Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server
account with us, you shall be able to secure any content you have uploaded via our protection tool. Its interface is as simple and intuitive as that of the Hepsia CP it's part of, so you will not have to write any code at any time. You'll simply need to select one of the domains/subdomains that you have inside the hosting account and to choose which folder has to be password-protected - the website’s root folder or some folder below it. Then you can type the username and the password, that'll be stored in encrypted form in our system, and you will be all set. The protection shall be activated immediately, so anyone that tries to access the recently secured folder shall have to type in the correct login details. If various people should be able to access the exact same content, you can create a separate username for each.
